Sincil Bank South

Overview

Sincil Bank South Character Area (view detailed map) is a mixed use Area with mainly civic and recreational uses, plus some commercial and residential buildings mostly located in the north east of the Character Area. The Character Area has strong boundaries on all sides consisting of Modern [1967-2009 AD] housing along the former line of the railway to the north, South Park Avenue to the south, Canwick Road to the east and Sincil Dyke to the west. There is no clear neighbourhood centre although the football ground is both a key part of the city and a focal point for activity within the Character Area.

The northern boundary of the Character Area also marks a significant change in townscape from the Victorian/Edwardian streets of terraced housing to the north. Following the arrival of the railway in 1882 development of mainly larger buildings and open spaces in this Character Area took place on what had formerly been enclosed fields, although a few terraced houses were built.

The football ground arrived in 1895 and the area has continued to have strong recreational uses to this day. In the Post-War [1946-1966 AD] and Modern [1967-2009 AD] Periods civic uses (such as the schools, and fire and ambulance stations) developed in the Character Area, in part due to the good road links to the rest of the city.
